Winter Exchange from Cathy


I received my Winter Exchange from Cathy today - I wish the mattress pincushion she stitched for me showed up a bit better in the photo... it is her first, and I just cannot believe it. It is simply stunning! What a great design - Merry Winter by Homespun Elegance. So perfect for me! And she wove a pretty ribbon all the way around the edges too. I have not tried that yet, and am utterly intrigued. She also spoiled me with lots of fun goodies. I especially love the kangaroo Christmas ornament! He is lying on his side only because I otherwise could not photograph it any better... wow, thanks Cathy! I finished your Summer Exchange tonight and I hope I can sneak out of work at some point tomorrow and post it off to you!

Stitched on today: Finished Summer Exchange for Cathy K, and started Christmas Ornament for Joan for Christmas Ornament Swap

Hi Carol! So pleased to hear it all arrived safely (I was especially worried that the kangaroo would arrive limbless or without a tail!)
It was fun preparing another package for you! I'm glad to hear you liked it.
